Here are two great articles.

 

One deals with the human brain's reality preferences, and how it can be applied to your photography.

The second emphasizes the importance of retaining your ability to make your own aesthetic judgments about your work, in an age of live gatekeepers being replaced by algorithms.

Thanks for the links. Both interesting articles. I especially liked the second one. The gatekeepers were indeed a mixed blessing, but I'm starting to miss them (the good ones at least). One of the reasons I stopped doing freelance writing was the exit of the gatekeepers. But that's another story...

 

Personally, I find that that the "peak shift" thing is often overdone in photography these days. Perhaps we don't all react to high saturation and contrast in the same way.
